Hi,
I was wondering if anyone here knew where I could find an accurate map of Long Island by county (Kings, Queens, Nassau, Suffolk), as the borders for the one on Wikipedia are highly off, especially when it comes to the Queens/Nassau border. I wasn't able to find much better searching Google. If anyone knows a good resource I'd appreciate it.
Thanks,
Hunter

Hagstrom's might be a good choice.

Thanks, I sent them an e-mailing inquiring if they have such a map. Anyone have any other ideas?

This map seems pretty accurate.

I've already replied to OpMi in a DM, pointing out that the Hagstrom map will show the accurate border. (Actually, the Hagstrom map for, say, Nassau County, will show the accurate NYC (Queens County)/Nassau County and the Suffolk County/Nassau County borders.)

I contacted Hagstrom and they said, "the only Pocket Map we would have is the Long Island Roads, NY map. It has the various counties but doesn't clearly outline them." However, they said, I could order a custom map for several hundred dollars. I did find this website (County Boundary Map) on which if you click on each county on LI it will show you the borders. It does the job, though I'd love something a little bit more elegant. There has to be something like this (Rare Antique Maps: 1873 Beers Wall Map of Long Island, New York : Geographicus) updated 125 years or like this (Flickr Photo Download: Vintage Map of Long Island (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mr_t_in_dc/572785367/sizes/o/in/photostream/ - broken link)) updated 80 years that doesn't cost $500 bucks, right?

Go to a map store and buy a Nassau County Map.

Map that shows border between Nassau and Queens? has a link to a New York Times article and a hyper-accurate map showing the border between the New York City Borough of Queens (coterminous with New York State County of Queens) and Nassau County.

I love how parts of Eastern and Central Nassau are EAST of Southern Nassau and parts of Western Nassau are NORTH of Central Nassau.
